Must read: The comings and goings of Obama’s pal Eric Whitaker

Dr. Eric Whitaker

Dr. Eric Whitaker

If you don't know who Eric Whitaker is (or if you do and don't care), you should read this fine piece of reporting by Carol Felsenthal in ChicagoMag.com. I won't try to summarize it here because there is so much interesting detail. Whether you like or dislike President Barack Obama, this is one of the most interesting insights into the Chicago (and Illinois) Way.
